Do you drive in Hollywood? Bodily Injury Liability and Property Damage Liability are coverages you need to know about. Most states have insurance laws that require drivers to maintain a minimum amount of BI and PDL. Property Damage Liability helps pay for damage to another person’s property that occurs in an accident you caused. What is Bodily Injury? If you cause a car accident that injures another person, your Bodily Injury Liability coverage will step in to help protect you financially. Bodily Injury helps pay for the other person's medical costs, like physical therapy or stitches, as well as lost income as a result of the injuries. It can also help pay for your legal fees if you're sued over the accident. In most no-fault states, you're still required to keep Bodily Injury coverage on your insurance policy.
It's important to know that Bodily Injury Liability will not help pay for your medical expenses, lost income, or any accident-related repairs to your vehicle. Legal fees are about the only thing Bodily Injury Liability coverage will pay for when it comes to your costs after a covered accident. Give us a call if you're not sure how you'd pay for your own after-accident costs. We'll explain the details of other coverages that can help like Comprehensive, Collision, Medical Payments, and Under/Uninsured Motorist.
What's the best amount of liability insurance to have in terms of Bodily Injury in Hollywood? It depends on the driver and the state. You generally have two options: go with Florida's statutory minimum Bodily Injury Liability requirements or choose higher limits.
The liability insurance coverage "limits" are the maximum amounts the policy will pay out for a covered accident. Bodily Injury limits are often illustrated in two amounts, something that is referred to as "split limits." The first amount is the sum of money that the company will pay for damages per person. The second amount is the maximum amount they'll pay per accident. Going with low limits could help you find cheap auto insurance, but it also means that could find yourself responsible for paying for the damages you cause that your insurance company does not cover. So, if you hurt someone in an auto accident and their medical expenses are more than your Bodily Injury limits, you might be on the hook for the difference.
